      I ate these wonderful sandwiches as a meal. The combination of lime sherbet and vanilla ice cream was a PERFECT match for this recipe! The only down side about it was a little hard to bite. I think it's because I made the cookie part too thick. Will cut them thinner next time! Great recipe after all!!

      There ain't nothing not to like about these treats. A fun and tasty sweet snack to be enjoyed by young or old. I completely forgot to sprinkle cookies with turbinado sugar and lime zest, but the end result lacked no flavor, though it would have resulted in a prettier cookie. The only thing I will do different next is cook the cookies a bit less (I went over the 10 minutes) because my cookies crisped up too much. Cooking them less will unite both cookie and ice cream with a closer consistency. The cookies on there own are superb and a great addition to any cookie jar. Thanks a bunch weekend cooker for sharing a keeper! Made it for PRMR.
